the commerce clause from maryland versus wertz, 1968. justice harlan who acquired the standard where they have a chosen regulatory scheme necessary to the protection of commerce, our investigation is at an end. in the city of bernie case, 1997, the court pulled out of thin air a new test, and the test is whether the legislation is proportionate and congruent, and that is the test which justice scalia so roundly criticized saying it was flabby and it was an excuse for a judicial legislation. now, would you take harlan's test as opposed to the congruence and proportionality test. >> senator specter, justice scalia is not the only person who has been critical of the test. a number of people have noted that the test, which is, of course, a test relating to congress' power to legislate under section 5 of the 14th amendment, that the test has led to some apparently inconsistent results in different cases so you have a case like garrett on the one hand and a case like tennessee versus land on the other >> i know those cases very well. 5-4. o'connor went the other way, but they used proportionate cong

the gentleman from maryland, congressman cummings. >> thank you very much, mr. chairman. secretary salazar. one of the things that we are -- that we had with the coast guard sub commitet and transportation committee and one of the things that we were concerned about is the -- what role do you all see the coast guard playing in the future? you know, the legislation passed by the committee on transportation infrastructure will require much more significant role for the coast guard and the approval of the oil spill response plans which is crucial given that the coast guard is responsible for managing the response to the spills. so what steps, if any, mms and the coast guard taking now to strengthen the role of the coast guard and by the way, that's been one of their complaints that they're asked to be responsible for overseeing the cleanup, but they don't have enough say in creating the plan. did you know that? they've actually testified to that. either one of you. >> congressman cummings, if i may, the role that we have seen play out with respect to the response with the deepwater horizon blowout

know the epidemic is not spread so if you one-- pick one state maryland, you could say most of the cases are in baltimore and montgomery, prince george's county but even in the city so in the district of columbia it is concentrated so there is much more hiv is to the river here than other parts. so the geographic issues are something we think the strategy needs to address. >> can i just say also, piece of this puzzle is that i think, tell the passage of the affordable care act, the dealing with health disparies and the gap in access to good care were dramatic, and some of that have differentlevels of eligibility for medicaid. that will change. states have different outreach efforts with the doubling of the community health center footprint that occurred because the recovery act, that will change. with the pipeline for additional medical providers, particularly medical providers coming out of minority communities. i think we have me strategies now in place and some funding now in place that goes directly to some of the disparities, some of which are geographic and some of whi
